Boat sales get a bounce in November

Recreational boat sales typically aren’t high in November, but the industry attracted significantly more buyers this year than it did a year earlier as 2012 continued to be a year of recovery. Sales in the main powerboat segments rose 12.3 percent to 2,748 boats from November 2011 and they were also 12.3 percent higher industrywide,…more

Boat sales hold onto gains in 3Q

What a difference a year makes. Third-quarter U.S. recreational boat sales reflect a previously reported late-summer slowdown, but 12-month rolling sales figures show how strongly the industry rebounded in the first half of this year after stabilizing as 2011 ended. Third-quarter 2012 sales rose just 2.3 percent in the main powerboat segments, to 31,581 boats,…more

Boat sales gain strength in October

After stalling in September, the recreational boating industry roared back to life in October with double-digit sales increases in several categories during what is traditionally a low-volume month in the industry. Sales in the main powerboat segments rose 22.1 percent, to 3,490 boats, from October 2011, and they were up 21 percent to 5,181 boats…more

Boat sales show year-over-year gains in October

Boat sales had “a pretty good uptick” in October, according to bellwether data collected by Info-Link Technologies, a Miami-based market research and analytics firm. The year-over-year change in growth is about 11 percent, Info-Link managing director Jack Ellis told Soundings Trade Only. The growth could be attributed in part to stronger sales in Florida and…more

Boat sales are flat in September

The recreational boating industry’s year-long rebound cooled in September, but the annual end to warm summer weather in much of the nation could be more of a coincidence than a cause. Sales in the industry’s main powerboat segments were virtually flat, rising just 0.3 percent to 3,776 boats from September 2011 and industrywide sales fell,…more

The Nova Southeastern University Oceanographic Center celebrated the grand opening of its Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystems Science Research Thursday with an appearance by former Vice President Al Gore and a photo op of university president George Hanbury diving on a coral reef nursery off Fort Lauderdale.

Boat sales keep summer pace in August

Like a weather pattern that settles in and dominates a season, recreational boat sales stayed in their 2012 summer groove in August with increases among aluminum fishing and pontoon boats and smaller fiberglass outboards and declines among smaller fiberglass sterndrives, cruisers and yachts. The industry’s growth lagged the pace it set earlier in the summer,…more

Florida boatbuilders await possible defense cuts

An impasse in Congress over the federal deficit and defense budget cuts could hurt some Florida businesses. The Navy spent $1 million to help Scott Lewit design and build the prototype of a utility boat that is 40 percent lighter, more fuel-efficient and less likely to injure its crew when it crashes into waves, according…more

Boat sales bounce back in July

Recreational boat sales regained some momentum in July, settling into a healthy pace of growth and providing more clues about the location and durability of the industry’s recovery. Aluminum pontoon and fishing boats continued to be reliable gainers, but the best-performing category in the industry’s main powerboat segments was the high-volume 11- to 40-foot outboard…more

Boat sales see slow growth in June

Recreational boat sales growth slowed in June, but single-digit gains in the main powerboat segments and industrywide were enough to keep both categories ahead by double digits for the first half of 2012. Groupings that have carried the industry for months continued to do so. Sales of aluminum pontoon boats rose 15.7 percent in June,…more
